Hardware for furniture, upholstery, kitchen, coatings and furnishing systems.

Furnishing Idea is the portal dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, designed to bring together different professionals such as architects, designers, carpenters, furniture makers and manufacturers active in the furniture market who represent the reference point in terms of innovation and quality of the product offered. On the other hand, the portal aims to provide a valid information service focused on products, projects, events and fairs and everything that revolves around the world of components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry.


The portal is divided into different sections where you can explore the different products according to different categories, get in touch with manufacturers, download catalogues to keep up with industry trends and watch videos of interviews with the best professionals and manufacturers.


In the articles section you can find all the information about the most innovative product technologies, such as furniture materials, furniture accessories and systems, furniture machinery, furniture hardware, manufactured by manufacturers with a solid experience in the field. In the companies section there is an overview of the manufacturers registered on our portal, divided by product category, where you can contact us for any request. Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.


In addition, to keep you constantly informed you can also consult our Journal section which contains all the Furnishing Idea magazines dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, such as the edition dedicated to Sicam or Interzum, two of the most important trade fairs in the sector. The magazines can be consulted from the portal or easily downloadable in pdf format.


Thanks to the trust placed in us by many manufacturers, our portal is now recognized both nationally and internationally. In fact, there are already many internationally recognized and established companies in the sector, including the AIPEF group (Italian Flexible Expanded Polyurethanes Companies) which promotes scientific information on the use of flexible polyurethane foam in the sectors in which it is used.

Rehau: innovative and increasingly sustainable technologies

The Rehau Group, consisting of the companies Meraxis, New Venture, Raumedic, Rehau Automotive and Rehau Industries, is a strong, independent family company with more than 190 locations worldwide and over 20,000 employees. Rehau develops, produces and markets solutions for the automotive, construction, furniture industry, industrial, medical and materials technologies with the aim of improving the quality of life through the use of innovative and sustainable technologies. 

In 2023, the company celebrated its 75th anniversary and now looks to the future in an increasingly sustainable key and with its usual capacity for innovation: we talk about this with Andrea Bucciarelli, Director Furniture Systems at Rehau S.p.A. 


Start of the year, time to take stock and strategise for the future. What goals are you setting yourself for tackling the markets in 2024? 

2024 will also be a year in which we will expand our product range: we will do this starting with our Raukantex edgebanding solutions, continuing on our path of innovation that has been going on for fifty years. The goal we have set ourselves is to make the offer of the Rehau Interior Solutions division increasingly synergetic, which translates into providing professionals, from carpentry to the furniture industry, with coordinated components for a design match that is always perfect, turning their creative visions into reality.

Raukantex edging production 


Sustainability is now seen as a great opportunity for companies. How is this concern for the environment expressed in your company? 

More than a great opportunity, sustainability is really part of our company DNA: it inspires us in the development of new products, in the production process and also when it comes to closing the loop. Given that, as of 2020, production in all European Rehau edging plants will be 100% powered by renewable energy sources, with the Raukantex eco&evo solutions we were the first to develop a line of environmentally friendly recycled edgings, capable of completely replacing standard solutions, while maintaining the high standards of both aesthetics and functionality that characterise our offer. To do this, we have carefully identified, evaluated and selected recycled raw material supply partners, guaranteeing the correct quality and quantity and, consequently, the availability for our customers to access at any time.

Raukantex evo edgings have obtained ISCC PLUS certification 


What are your strategies to reach your target market, especially designers and planners, to allow them greater customisation of the finished product? 

Certainly our commercial strategy will focus on a more capillary distribution of our products throughout the territory: the activation of new local distributors will make the wide range of Rehau solutions for interior design more accessible, even in the case of non-industrial needs. We are at the service of small businesses with the same attention and reliability with which we are used to serving the needs of the furniture industry. 

Rehau's wide range of interior design solutions 

The availability of edgings in any quantity and size, from 1 piece and 1 m, short delivery times, the possibility of receiving free edging samples and online configuration tools are just a few examples of the services with which our customers can achieve the degree of customisation that makes each of their projects unique
